Myleene Klass and Littlewoods launch 'Mum's Got Talent!'
On Tuesday evening, I was invited to Littlewoods HQ for the launch of Mum's Got Talent - a campaign to unearth the secret talents of mums across the country. It was a lovely opportunity to catch up with some of my favourite bloggers, sip a few cheeky cocktails and browse the Littlewoods SS14 collection - and I even managed to fit in a fabulous Nails Inc manicure and a hairdressing lesson courtesy of Webster Whiteman and BaByliss too.
Ridiculously glamorous and super talented mum of two, Myleene Klass, was there to tell us all about the Mum's Got Talent campaign - and also to showcase her own new collection for Littlewoods, which I'll save for a blog post of its own next week.
Us mums do the hardest job in the world. Fact. Research suggests we actually carry out 19 different jobs every day including that of chef, chauffeur, teacher, nurse and personal shopper.... and that's just a tiny fraction of what goes on! But it doesn't just stop there; we also have hidden talents that go unnoticed and the Talented Mums campaign wants to celebrate these weird and wonderful skills. In honour of Mother's Day, Littlewoods are putting together a special TV advert to be aired later this month - and they want us to be a part of it!
To be in with a chance of bagging the starring role, you just need to take a short video showcasing your weird, wonderful or just plain brilliant talents - or those of your own mum. There will also be scouts in Manchester, Brighton and Birmingham (on 6th, 11th and 12th March respectively) ready to film the talented mums that they come across! There's a whole host of fabulous prizes up for grabs including a luxury weekend away, a £250 voucher to spend at littlewoods.com and hundreds of prizes from their Mother's Day collection plus, of course, there is the chance to star in the new ad which is a prize in itself if you ask me!
To provide inspiration, some celebrity friends of Littlewoods have already made their own fantastic videos.....
To submit a video you can upload it here, tweet it to @Littlewoods using the hashtag #TalentedMums or send it via email by 26th March.
I can't wait to see the finished ad! xoxo
